Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland

Post by WilmaM » Fri Jul 08, 2022 11:20 am

I have just found an article on this new site of Irish records:
https://virtualtreasury.ie/
Welcome to the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland — an all-island and international legacy for the Decade of Centenaries.

The Treasury re-imagines and reconstructs through digital technologies the Public Record Office of Ireland, a magnificent archive destroyed on June 30th, 1922, in the opening engagement of the Civil War.

This is an open-access resource, freely and permanently available online to all those interested in Ireland’s deep history at home and abroad. Together with our partners across Ireland and around the world, we are democratizing access to invaluable records and illuminating seven centuries of Irish history.


The article Digitally recovering Ireland’s history: is here:

I've only just dipped my toe in the waters so I've no idea what all is there or how useful it'll be to genealogy, but any more Irish records available can only be a good thing.
